      BOD Nominations   10/03/2017

      Emails have been sent to all current CCWS Members with a link to BOD nominations. Please check your email.   You will need to ask the person you're nominating for their current 2017 CCWS Member Number. Keep in mind that we will contact each nominee to make sure they are OK with being a candidate. You can't nominate yourself either (sorry). All nominations are due by November 3, 2017. To keep from having 574 different nominees, a nominee must be named by at least five members to qualify. We will compile all the nominations and put the top ten nominees on the November 10, 2017, ballot. Elections are over on December 10, 2017. We will announce the winners on December 13, 2017, and the two winners will take office January 1, 2018. How to get your current CCWS member number. Log into the CCWS event registration system. Your member number will be next to your name on the welcome screen. https://www.chumpcar.com/register/login.php Mike Chisek

Calabogie Chumpionship - 2017

Recommended Posts

So, who's going?  Is there a chance we will hit 45 cars?  Any other EC/Race cars taking advantage of the 3 hour enduro option?

 

Officially one month left until we go racing again!  A track day is booked this coming Saturday for a little bit of race car therapy but other than that Wheelhouse Racing is ready to go.

Pocket Deuces Racing is strongly considering attending with our #922 1990 Miata.  

 

I believe there is a 3 hour enduro and 6 hour enduro option.  The registration page says "2 days" after both options.  Does this mean signing up for either of these enduros gets you 2 days of those short races (i.e., signing up for the 6 hour enduro option for $800ish gets you a 6-hour enduro on Saturday and a 6-hour enduro on Sunday)?  If so, we're doing the Double-6s!

 best to email wendy@chumpcarcanada.com to confirm. 

 

BUT why not just enter the full event?

The wording is a bit confusing.  I'd bet that what they mean is 6 hour enduro as in 3+3.  But, don't forget the price is in Cdn$ too, makes for a pretty cheap race entry.

 

But I agree with Ken, come do the whole thing!  A well driven Miata could do well there.

We'll be bringing our Miata to kill tires on that super-abrasive surface ... gotta practice F1-style quick tire changes :)

I would have agreed with you on it being a 3+3, but the registration gives separate options for "3 hour enduro (2 days)" and "6 hour enduro (2 days."  I emailed back and forth with Wendy, and although she was really helpful I'll admit I'm still not 100% certain.

 

I wrote "For final clarification though, if we chose the 6-hour enduro option, is this a 6-hour enduro on Saturday and a 6-hour enduro on Sunday? Or is it just one 6-hour enduro?" And the response was "The 6 hour is for Saturday and Sunday yes".  I may try calling as this would be cleared up in a second over the phone in an actual conversation.

 

As far as why the shorter enduro option vs the main event?  Simply put, although I support Chumpcar and Chumpcar Canada as great organizations, money is always a factor.  The team has already done 3 race weekends this year, and our final projected event was going to be the December VIR.  This seems like a great option for an "extra" race, and if it's actually 2 x 6-hour races for $900ish, that ends up being a much better value than the 16 hours of driving in the main event for $1700ish.  (I'm hoping these numbers I'm seeing on the registration page are CAD, but MotorsportReg isn't exactly Canadian based so I'm not sure at this point.)

 

If/when I get a clarification on this, I'll post it up here.

99% sure that it's Canadian dollars, not USD.  The fees on Motorsportsreg are early $1356 and late $1582 ... which are $1200+13% HST tax and $1400+13% HST. So for you being from the US you're looking at less than $1300USD vs. $1700 for the event main event.  Seems like a good deal to me.

 

As you said, the best way to contact Wendy is to call her.  She's very friendly and you will be able to get a clear answer instantly.
